WHITE TEA - ASAMI TEA SHOP
This color of tea requires the least complex processing method yet, it is the most delicate of all teas. However, it takes a long time to produce ( 2-3 days), and has a slight natural oxidation from its long withering process after it is baked at a low heat, sorted, and baked again. White tea is considered one of the healthiest teas as it contains antioxidants such as catechins and polyphenols, concentrated in the bud that help strengthen the immune system. The leaves go through the following processes: plucking, withering, firing/drying and sorting. Our white tea from Rwanda and Tanzania has a consistency that is unmatched.
